Jono Gibbes' Irish rugby team Leinster were crowned European champions on Saturday after staging a remarkable comeback in the Heineken Cup Final at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff to beat English side Northampton. Trailing 22-6 at half time, Leinster clawed their way back to secure a famous 33-22 victory.

Former New Zealand All Black Gibbes is the forward coach at Leinster and took time out from training to give an interview prior to the final - go to the link:
